Henry Colvin and Aaron Harris identified as men killed in Lancaster South Carolina shooting

Sheriff Barry Faile identified the two men killed during shooting at a crowded sports bar near Lancaster, S.C., early Saturday as 29-year-old Henry Lee Colvin of Rock Hill and 28-year-old Aaron Harris of Kershaw, S.C.

“I believe it was one person targeting another,” Faile said at a news conference. “Unfortunately, we had 10 victims that got shot,” referring to the other eight individuals injured in the shooting.

The shooter had been “having a beef” for a couple of months with one of the men who was fatally shot, Faile said at the news conference. He did not say which one. He also refused to disclose the type of firearm believed to have been involved in the shooting.

Coroner Karla Deese identified the men.

“This event is very tragic and will affect all involved, for years to come,” Deese said. “The sheer magnitude of injury is like none I have seen in my 14 years with the Coroner’s Office.”

Four victims were flown to hospitals after the shooting at the Old Skool Sports Bar & Grill just north of Lancaster, Faile said in a news release.

Another victim was injured in a fall as people fled the bar after the shooting at 2:45 a.m., Faile said.

“This was a violent incident of huge magnitude that was witnessed by lots of people,” Faile said in the release. “Two people are dead, and many more are seriously injured. The shooter or shooters are out there.”

Authorities had not named the person of interest by Saturday afternoon.

Law enforcement in neighboring York and Lancaster counties and around the state were made aware of the shooting and offered assistance of needed. State Law Enforcement Division spokesman Thom Berry said SLED will assist in any way it can.

York County Sheriff Kevin Tolson and Chester County Sheriff Max Dorsey each said that their office will help in any way possible.

Tolson described the shooting as “brutal.”

Dorsey called the Lancaster shootings “awful and unacceptable.”

Anyone with information about the shooting should call the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office at (803) 283-3388 or contact Midlands Crimestoppers at (888) 274-6372.
